            ABOUT RITUAL

             

            Ritual is changing the way people know coffee.

            In 2005, when corporate coffee dominated American culture, Ritual unknowingly started a fun and crazy revolution that would ultimately help launch the new coffee movement.

            We buy 95% of our beans direct from our producer partners, setting the highest standard in the industry. This makes sure we get our hands on the best beans in the world, but more importantly, makes sure our farmers maintain the quality of life they deserve.

            Now a bona fide San Francisco original, Ritual has also earned its iconic status as one of the best coffee roasting companies in the world.

            Despite our mad- scientist pursuit of the perfect cup, Ritual is determined to demystify the entire coffee experience.

            So whether you’re a fancy pants coffee nerd or a complete novice, we’ll always deliver our kick-ass coffee in the most fun and down-to-earth way we know how.

For the second year in a row, we sent six baristas to origin, along with owner Eileen Rinaldi and coffee buyer Steve Ford.  They've just returned from visiting Guatemala, seeing ten farms during the harvest and hanging out with our producers. Check out our Instagram feed and #BiP2015 for pictures.  We'll be sharing the stories in the Spring when the coffees arrive.  In the mean time, visit a Ritual cafe and talk to the baristas about their experiences!
